The Fabric Workshop and Museum, in partnership with DesignPhiladelphia, hosts a day of workshops offering a studio tour of the various artistic processes behind the creation of the current exhibition Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley: Blood Moon.

Visitors can discover how screen printing, trompe l’oeil–style painting, and molded pumpkin heads were used to create the unique video exhibition, then visit the print studio to screen print a Halloween tote bag to take home.

Blood Moon is an immersive installation centered on the presentation of two new film works—Blood Moon and I’m Jackson Pollock—each featuring Reid Kelley and Kelley’s distinctive black-and-white palette and rhyming wordplay.

Registration is required. Three timeslots are available:

  • 3–4 p.m. (Families)
  • 5–6 p.m. (All ages)
  • 6:30–7:30 p.m. (All ages)
